“We are all different. Don’t judge, understand instead.”
Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

“Don't let the expectations and opinions of other people affect your decisions. It's your life, not theirs. Do what matters most to you; do what makes you feel alive and happy. Don't let the expectations and ideas of others limit who you are. If you let others tell you who you are, you are living their reality — not yours. There is more to life than pleasing people. There is much more to life than following others' prescribed path. There is so much more to life than what you experience right now. You need to decide who you are for yourself. Become a whole being. Adventure.”
Roy T. Bennett

“If you don't know who you truly are, you'll never know what you really want.”

“The greatest challenge in life is to be our own person and accept that being different is a blessing and not a curse.

A person must be selective with their time and energy because both elements of life are limited.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“In our contemplative moments, if our silence is deep enough, we can identify our authentic ringtone pinging within audible range of the calamitous roar of all humanity. If we can hear our authentic voice penetrating the turmoil of a fretful night, rest assured that despite the traumatic turmoil, blood-curdling trauma, and incessant greed that frames these trying times, when death snatches us away from earthly fields the villagers will hear the salvo of that silvery bell knelling for thee.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“I hold no interest in the tapestry of politics, culture, or religion. I lack the mental aptitude and intellectual capacity to debate nuances of esoteric philosophy and abstract ethical principles. I cannot repose faith in a national ethos that promotes avariciousness, mediocrity, and hedonism. I find no reassurance and emotional wellbeing in adopting religious piety, which requires acceptance and belief of intangible and empirically unprovable concepts and things. It is foolish to squander an earthly life in pursuit of a perfect afterlife, of which there is no evidence. Nor can I endorse suicide because it accomplishes nothing other than terminating a person’s opportunity to meld meaning out of the starkness of existence. I exert no power over external things and gain nothing from resisting fate. I need to accept fate calmly and dispassionately, make productive use of my modest allotment of time, and not waste the spark of existence. I can discover the object of my earnest pursuit only within the flickering self. I am responsible for my actions, which I can examine and control through rigorous exertion of self-discipline.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls
